At Sign India 2016 held from 13 to 15 May, Epson India displayed its recently launched Epson Sure Color P20070 designed for the professional photographic industry, indoors and outdoors signage segment and art industry. The biggest highlight of P20070 is that it offers five types of new black inks. It also has a 2.5-inch nozzle width that allows for more coverage and the printer also has an option of 320 GB hard disk. The P20070 offers high optical density and improved resistance.

“The P20070 has received a very good response. This printer has been commercially launched recently. We have got some serious inquiries from new as well as existing customers, who want to upgrade from the 44-inch P9900 to this 64-inch model,” said Ketan Nagesh Das, business development – LFP, Epson India.

The second large format printer on display was SC B7070. It is the world’s first original ink tank large format printer that delivers fast, cost effective and high quality printing, said Das, adding that SC B7070 is the first in the class to integrate large, 1.5L capacity ink tanks for increased productivity and efficiency, reducing the frequency of ink refills while at the same time enabling fast, high-volume printing. Talking about Sign India 2016 Das stated that although the event is small, there are quality exhibitors and serious visitors. “People who are seriously looking for solutions are here,” he said.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
